This blog post goes over several grep-like tools and their integration with Vim. If that’s something you do often, it’s worth a read. The tools are:
- Vim’s built-in “:cdo” and “:cfdo” commands. Here’s another blog post with a nice explanation of what these are and how to use them.
- Ale – asynchronous lint engine.
- RipGrep – a very fast tool for recursively searching directories for a regular expression. Extra bits for Vim integration are provided by the vim-ripgrep plugin.
